soniK is an open source digital audio editor for Linux, using the KDE platform. soniK allows you to record, edit and process sounds on your computer.


soniK's main features include:

  • Visualise the audio as a waveform or a spectrogram spectral display
  • Edit the audio and transform it with a wide variety of plugins
  • Generate new sounds
  • Develop your own plugins using the soniK SDK
  • soniK uses the aRts sound system from KDE which means a wide variety of soundcards are supported. Future versions of soniK will also use the JACK sound system which provides real-time, low-latency sound input/output.
  • soniK uses LADSPA plugins to apply effects to sound files. Several packages of plugins are available, providing hundreds of effects and you should install some of these to get the most out of soniK. Available packages include:
